    Today, we have the four seasons in one day, a wonderful experience, but unexpected at all!!
    What should we do in such cases??

    Did you also have the rainbow, @science?
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,292 mod
    I guess you have to dress for every occasion @Science24.

    24º Celsius degree and partly cloudy sky, but the sun will shine in the afternoon.

    Lynne said:
    " Throughout the year, Brazilia is said have the most pleasant
    climate in Brazil.

    !Note - As far as I know there is only one capital of Brazil."


    So @Lynne, help me. Of course Brazil have only one capital, but we have other capitals like Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Goiânia, Belo Horizonte and more 19 capital cities.

    How can I compare Brazilia with the others capitals?

    You could say, "... the most pleasant climate of all the state capitals."

    Btw, it is raining today and it is not cold and will not be, I think.

    It is raining today, but it is not cold and I don't think it will get that way.

    In the middle of this night it began to snow and it is still snowing, thick flakes are falling. It is so wintry everything is covered in white. I am glad a shrub sitting by our house wall has got plenty of red berries on it. A few black birds discovered it some times ago and are eating from it.

    No passion killers for me! Though last night in an air-con bus, it was quite chilly and I was very glad my fleece was handy. I hadn't expected to need it again before heading back to Kathmandu at the end of January. It will be cold there then.

    South means south India. Right now I'm in Rajasthan. Today it reached 29 degrees, though now it's 23 degrees (7pm). I'm being warned that it might drop to about 10 degrees tonight though. Happily I have a twin bedded room and so I might steal the blanket off the other bed if one isn't enough.

    Oh Lynne - I hope the central heating lasted till you could get an engineer. I was only today talking to a boiler fitter from London who was telling me how boilers aren't built to last like they used. It's funny the things you get to talk about over a cup of chai in India.

    Today my husband switched on our central heating and it is working properly. It is quite an old servant and does its duty season by season.

    Old faithful! Those old systems are worth their weight in gold. It's sunny and warm but last night I was glad of the two duvets on my bed.

    It's in fact a beautiful weather today. Calm, sunny, cold.

    It seems that there is no flu vaccine left here.
    I decided to go through this winter period without the vaccination. :bz
    I'll keep my fingers cross.

    Good luck April, I hope the flu stay far of you.

    Here we have some fog, but the sun can be seen across it.

    It was a cold day, the ice on the ground is frozen and it makes a nice sound when you step on it.

    I was in Hartlepool next to the sea. I thought we were going to get snow, but we escaped with just very cold weather.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,292 mod
    We had a fluttering of snow yesterday. I think I nearly deafened @April when I squeaked "It's snowing!".

    This morning it was very frosty, so I waited for the pavements to defrost a bit before I walked Laika.

    I am glad you couldn't see me with my mouth wide open Lynne. :-O

    It's dry, cold though quite agreable weather for me here, but our weather forecaster keeps saying that this month is one of the ten darkest November month since 1843.

    It's sunny and warm again, but in the early morning and evening it is a tad chilly. I should be sensible and wrap up a bit better.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,026 mod
    Lynne thank you for the correction. I knew there was something wrong with the last sentence I wrote. But the correction makes me think, the tense that is needed her is far beyond my level.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,119 mod
    Never fear Hermie. Remember, grammar is just the glue to stick words together.

    I was a sunny day, but very cold. The last snow we got is still on the ground and by the edges of the streets.

    Hermine, YOU were a sunny day? You could be sunny though, if you are happy and smiling.

  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,292 mod
    We have had several snow flurries, but nothing that has stuck around for long enough than a fleeting feeling of frostiness.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,212 Teacher
    Well, I missed the snow in Hartlepool! Thank goodness!

    It was cold and drizzly this morning.
    While I was walking to the shop I desperately found out that I have to wait at least for five months before I can feel the warmth of the sun again.
